On behalf of the Board of National Trust of Australia (Queensland) Limited (NTAQ) it is my pleasure to invite you to attend our Annual General Meeting (AGM) which will be held on Friday 16 November 2018 at 2.00pm in Ipswich.
The 2018 Notice of AGM contains details on the items of business that you have the opportunity to vote or comment on at the meeting, as well as explanatory notes and proxy form.
The formal business of the AGM will start at 2.00pm and then followed by an overview of the strategic directions of the company for the year ahead. Registration for the AGM is open from 1.30pm. The AGM is expected to conclude at 3.00pm. Following the AGM there will be a walking tour of Ipswich CBD Heritage places.
This is part of the NTAQ’s 2018 Heritage Conference being held over the 16 to the 18 November in Ipswich.
National Trust 2018 Heritage Conference details can be found on our website. The walking tour is a free event and hence bookings are essential.
I would like to remind Members that secret ballot Director Elections are being held prior to the AGM to fill 3 vacancies that exist on the NTAQ Board.
CorpVote, an independent election company has been appointed to manage the election process which will commence on the 15 October and concludes on Sunday 11 November. Members will receive an email outlining the online voting system on 10 October.
Members without a registered email address will receive a voter information letter. Whilst voting for Director elections is voluntary we encourage members to participate. Results of the election will be announced at the AGM.
I also encourage you to attend the AGM or lodge the proxy form if not able to attend. It provides an opportunity for Members to have a say in the future of your Company.
If you are planning to attend the 2018 AGM please RSVP by 13 November by sending email to Amanda Yow, Executive Assistant to the CEO firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 07 5534 0801.
The Directors and Executives of National Trust of Australia (Queensland) look forward to seeing you at the 2018 AGM.
